Our 1994 Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear, aka the TBD Tractor, just got a new long-range fuel tank. This Long Range Automotive tank brought in by Long Range America ups our fuel capacity and extends our Delica’s range significantly. In fact, here’s a video all about it.Continue reading →
We get asked a lot of questions about our fleet of JDM (Japenese Domestic Market) vehicles. But the one that gets asked the most is how to find parts. Sometimes it can be a daunting task to find that hard-to-get piece for your JDM vehicle, but there are ways to find parts for your Delica,…Continue reading →
For years we’ve seen these steps that simply hook onto your door’s latch and you can use them as a step. Frankly, we always thought they were a good idea. Recently the folks from SUV Doorstep reached out and sent a sample for us to try out.Continue reading →
By now you may know we have a 1994 Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear (L400) 4×4 van in our stable. And of course by “stable” I mean our driveway of ’90s JDM 4WD Mitsubishi money pits projects. What you might not know is we’re again partnering with Tim Esterdahl of Pickup Truck + SUV Talk to…Continue reading →
As electrical things break and need fixing on our small fleet of 1990s JDM cars, specifically our 1991 and 1992 Mitsubishi Pajeros and 1994 Delica Space Gear, it’s ironic how much I could use a local Radio Shack these days. Connectors, wiring, capacitors—all in one shop open seven days a week. Yet the brick-and-mortar stores…Continue reading →
We had the pleasure to be a guest on YAK Radio with Dave Stall again on September 20, 2020. Dave’s show, which is on KCBQ The ANSWER FM 96.1 / AM 1170 in San Diego, talks about a host of automotive topics. This time, we talk about our 1994 Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear van as well as a host of other oddball vehicle topics. Hey, he obviously knows us well!
The show’s about an hour long, and we always have a great time during our 60 minutes with Dave. Enjoy.
A little over a year ago, our 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero XR-II, aka the Ralli Tractor, suffered a cracked block due to a fouled thermostat. Today, it has a new Hyundai heart courtesy of a D4BF engine swap. How does this compare to the original 4D56? Does all this make any sense? If not read on….Continue reading →
A couple of months ago, we sold our beloved Space Tractor, our 1989 Mitsubishi Delica L300. It was a fantastic vehicle, but it was time for a change. We knew we wanted another Delica, but it had to be the right one. Somewhat amazingly, the perfect van fell into our laps rather quickly: a 1994…Continue reading →
It’s been just over three months since we returned from the 2020 Alcan 5000 Winter Rally in March. We came back to a totally different world than we left thanks to COVID-19. But during our time on the Alcan 5000, we had left the real world behind and focused on the incredible journey.Continue reading →
In March we competed in the 2020 Alcan 5000 Winter Rally. We drove our 1991 Mitsubishi Pajero, aka, the Terra Tractor, from Kirkland, Washington up to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, and finished in Anchorage, Alaska. It was an amazing experience to put it lightly. The event’s tire sponsor, Nitto, put together this awesome video showcasing the…Continue reading →
